We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.
ABOVE: The Hotel San Salvadoris
in a side street off the Campo San Bartolomeo, a few blocks from the Rialto
San Salvador is a small, friendly two-star hotel on the San Marco side of
the Rialto Bridge, within fairly quick walking distance of the Piazza San Marco.
(Our son and daughter-in-law stayed there a few years ago and enjoyed their
experience.) The hotel's 10 rooms aren't large, but all have private bathrooms
with showers, and Wi-Fi is included in the reasonable rates.
How to reach the Hotel San Salvador from the Alilaguna
Orange Line airport boat at Rialto:
As you leave the boat pier, turn left. Cross
the small bridge just ahead of you and walk through the arcaded passage until
you see a Goldenpoint underwear shop.
Turn right onto the Calle Larga Mazzini and
walk straight ahead to the Campo del San Salvador, which has a memorial column
in the street.
Turn left and walk down the Via 2 Aprile toward the Campo
San Bartolomeo. Immediately after the Disney store, you'll see the Calle
Galeazza on your right. (It's just to the left of the Disney Store in the
main photo above.)
Turn right into the Calle Galeazza and walk to the Hotel San
Salvador, which is at no. 5264. (You'll need to ring the bell and climb a
staircase to the hotel lobby.)
